The Billy Graham Crusade Choir has been a familiar staple in opening Graham Crusades over the years—much like this one from New York City’s Madison Square Garden in 1957! And in cooperation with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Museum of the Bible is exhibiting "Pilgrim Preacher: Billy Graham, the Bible, and the Challenges of the Modern World," which focuses on Billy Graham’s use of the Bible in his ministry from the late 1940s through his retirement in 2005. Billy Graham’s sermons always centered on a Bible passage—over 100 sermons from John 3—and his sermons frequently referenced the story of the rich young ruler in Mark 10! Perhaps no individual in modern history has done more to invite people to engage with the Bible!
